Re: Mechanical Engineer Position (Ref. Code: 12345), advertised on Monster.com

Dear Mr. Smith:

Your job description for a mechanical engineer perfectly matches my qualifications, and I am very interested in the opportunity.

I have enjoyed a progressively responsible engineering career with ABC Manufacturing Co., and participated in the engineering of three major car model changes. I am experienced in all phases of new vehicle model development and implementation, from conception to production stages. Most recently, I have:
 

  • Contributed to major model changes for the 2008 Carname, 2007 Carname and 2006 Carname;
  • Developed process plans and layouts for seven additional car models;
  • Reduced ergonomic impact on production team members by designing new assist lift systems;
  • Helped create estimation and calculation tool for project budgets, greatly improving negotiating power with installation contractors; and
  • Built rapport with overseas colleagues, often traveling to Japan for production consultations.

In addition, I have served as lead engineer in establishing standards that have reduced costs, enhanced efficiency, improved production methods and simplified equipment and part needs.

Mr. Smith, I have received repeated commendations from ABC Manufacturing Co. for my work quality, revenue contributions, and commitment to achieving company goals, and I know I would be a valuable asset to your North American Division. Please feel free to call me at 555-555-5555 or send an email to rmatthews@somedomain.com to arrange a meeting. I look forward to speaking with you!

Sincerely,



Robyn A. Matthews

Dear Mr. Shutter,

I found your advertisement for the mechanical engineer position on Careerbuilder.com and am writing to apply. I am highly analytical, detail-oriented and have superior technical and scientific abilities. In addition to four years of experience working as a mechanical engineer, I have a Master’s degree in the discipline.

My position working as a mechanical engineer often includes troubleshooting and analyzing problems to find mechanical or thermal device solutions. Using computer-aided design methods, I design thermal or mechanical devices as needed. Of course, developed devices then require testing of the prototypes which I carry out in the laboratory to ensure they function properly.

I have great technical writing skills and am able to author manuals, specifications and schematics for thermal and mechanical devices I design and develop. I enjoy working as a mechanical engineer because I find it gratifying to be able to solve complex problems. I have excellent trouble-shooting, critical-thinking and problem solving skills which I put to good use.

I believe I would make a good choice for the mechanical engineer position at your company. I would like to schedule an interview to learn more about the position. I have attached my resume and can be reached by phone anytime.

Sincerely,

Merrilee Myers
